Control engineering is a major area of research and application that receives
little coverage in USENET. Part of the reason may be that the subject is
cross disciplinary and so people with problems or views maybe direct their
discussions to other specialist groups. However, from running an electronic
newsletter on control engineering matters, 
I know that there are numerous 'network literate'  control engineers
who might benefit from a forum of their own. Therefore I am calling for
a request for discussion on the foundation of a new Newsgroup with the proposed
name sci.engr.control.

Here for discussion is a draft charter

		sci.engr.control
                ================

This forum aims to encourage discussion and free exchange of ideas amongst 
practicing control engineers, researchers and students on any subject related to the practice or theory of control engineering.

Topics to discuss can vary as far as your imagination stretches within the
realms of control engineering and the technology that affects it.

The group aims to cover any subject related to control engineering including
theory, research, and practice but particularly the use and future development of computer-based applications for the analysis, design, simulation and
implementation of control systems. Examples of suitable topics would be

	o data definitions for control systems design packages
	o user interfaces for control systems design packages
	o system modelling languages
	o simulation packages
        o environments for the integration of CAD tools for control
	o the application of new computer science techniques
          in control systems design and implementation
	o commercial packages
	o new theories
        o applications of control
        o social and environmental impact of control
        o control systems education 

One aim is to stimulate the exchange of ideas about what software
systems should be devloped to support the analysis, design and
implementation of control systems with a longer term-aim of the
development of guidelines or examples of good practice that will
eventually bring freedom to users and developers of computer-based
tools. Another aim is to provide timely notice of new academic ideas
and control methods and to encourage the take-up of advanced control by
industry. A further implicit aim is to try to break down the
communication barriers that traditionally exist in the control
community and to introduce them to the joys of the Internet, thereby
widening their horizons and opening their eyes to the benefits of the
free exchange of ideas that other users of computers have known for
some time.

VOTING PROCEDURE:

  Send votes to: [email protected]

  Preferably your message should include one of the following lines
  in the body of the text:

      I vote YES for sci.engr.control
      I vote NO for sci.engr.control

  We will be flexible in accepting other wording providing your vote 
  is made clear and unambiguous.  If we receive more than one vote
  from the same account;

    o If the votes are for the same side of the issue, We will
      count the votes as one vote. We will send email informing
      the voter that their vote is only being counted once.

    o If the votes are for opposite sides of the issue, We will
      throw out both votes. I will send email informing the
      voter that their vote is being discounted in this case.

  The voting period ends at 00:00 BST (01:00 GMT) on Monday, Aug 31, 1992. 
  In order for your vote to be counted we must receive it before then.

COMMENTS:
  
  The guidelines for successful creation of a new newsgroup require
  that the vote taker receive 100 more YES votes than NO votes, and that
  the YES votes be at least 2/3 of all valid votes cast. We will post a 
  mass acknowledgement of votes received and further calls for votes at     
  approximately weekly intervals.


  Note, Votes are being counted by my friend and colleague Roumen Antonov.
  Please send your votes to him <[email protected]> not to me. I am
  going on vacation and so any votes that are sent to me
  will not be seen until September, after the vote concludes.

This is the third, final call for votes for an unmoderated group for
discussion of topics related to the theory and practice of control
engineering.  The request for discussion (RFD) was published about two
months ago, and the discussion surrounding the group's creation was
generally positive.  The call for votes (CFV) was initially posted about
20 days ago and many people responded (the acknowledgement is later
in this posting). Here is the proposal for the new newsgroup:

-------------------------------------------------------

NAME:
    sci.engr.control

STATUS:  
    unmoderated

CHARTER:

This forum aims to encourage discussion and free exchange of ideas
amongst practicing control engineers, researchers and students on any
subject related to the practice or theory of control systems and
control engineering.

The group aims to cover any subject related to control engineering including
theory, research, and practice but particularly the use and future development 
of computer-based applications for the analysis, design, simulation and
implementation of control systems. Examples of suitable topics would be

	o data definitions for control systems design packages
	o user interfaces for control systems design packages
	o system modelling languages
	o simulation packages
        o environments for the integration of CAD tools for control
	o the application of new computer science techniques
          in control systems design and implementation
	o commercial control systems design and analysis packages
	o new theories
        o applications of control (e.g. process industries, aerospace, 
          transport, manufacturing, ...)
        o real-time software
        o social and environmental impact of control systems
        o none engineering applications (e.g. economics, social, ...)
        o control systems education 

* One aim is to stimulate the exchange of ideas about what software
systems should be devloped to support the analysis, design and
implementation of control systems with a longer term-aim of the
development of guidelines or examples of good practice that will

VOTING PROCEDURE:

  Send ALL votes to me: eeantono@pyr.swan.ac.uk

  Preferably your message should include one of the following lines
  in the body of the text:

      I vote YES for sci.engr.control
      I vote NO for sci.engr.control

  We will be flexible in accepting other wording providing your vote 
  is made clear and unambiguous.  If we receive more than one vote
  from the same account;

    o If the votes are for the same side of the issue, We will
      count the votes as one vote. We will send email informing
      the voter that their vote is only being counted once.

    o If the votes are for opposite sides of the issue, We will
      throw out both votes. I will send email informing the
      voter that their vote is being discounted in this case.

  The voting period ends at 00:00 BST (01:00 GMT) on Monday, Aug 31, 1992. 
  In order for your vote to be counted we must receive it before then.

COMMENTS:
  
  The guidelines for successful creation of a new newsgroup require
  that the vote taker receive 100 more YES votes than NO votes, and that
  the YES votes be at least 2/3 of all valid votes cast.

The voting period for the unmoderated group sci.engr.control
is over. The group passed overwhelmingly with 390 votes for and 12 votes
against.

Here is the charter
------------------------------------------------------------------------

NAME:
    sci.engr.control

STATUS:  
    unmoderated

CHARTER:

This forum aims to encourage discussion and free exchange of ideas
amongst practicing control engineers, researchers and students on any
subject related to the practice or theory of control systems and
control engineering.

The group aims to cover any subject related to control engineering including
theory, research, and practice but particularly the use and future development 
of computer-based applications for the analysis, design, simulation and
implementation of control systems. Examples of suitable topics would be

	o data definitions for control systems design packages
	o user interfaces for control systems design packages
	o system modelling languages
	o simulation packages
        o environments for the integration of CAD tools for control
	o the application of new computer science techniques
          in control systems design and implementation
	o commercial control systems design and analysis packages
	o new theories
        o applications of control (e.g. process industries, aerospace, 
          transport, manufacturing, ...)
        o real-time software
        o social and environmental impact of control systems
        o none engineering applications (e.g. economics, social, ...)
        o control systems education 

* One aim is to stimulate the exchange of ideas about what software
systems should be devloped to support the analysis, design and
implementation of control systems with a longer term-aim of the
development of guidelines or examples of good practice that will
eventually bring freedom to users and developers of computer-based
tools.


* Another aim is to provide timely notice of new academic ideas and
control methods and to encourage the take-up of advanced control by
industry.
 

* A further implicit aim is to try to break down the communication
barriers that traditionally exist in the control community and to
introduce them to the joys of the Internet, thereby widening their
horizons and opening their eyes to the benefits of the free exchange of
ideas that other users of computers have known for some time.

There will now be a 5 day waiting period which time you will have a
chance to correct any errors in the list of voters received. Errors
should be reported to eechris@pyr.swan.ac.uk.

If, after the waiting period, there were no serious objections that
might invalidate the vote, the news.announce.newgroups moderator will
send out the sci.engr.control message.

Thanks for your interest and taking the trouble to vote.
I look forward to the discussions to come.
